Administrators can manage folder properties, as follows: While in Content > Pages, click a folder's More Actions menu to see the folder management dropdowns.
The Edit menu contains options for editing the access settings and tag access settings for the folder. The Publish menu lets you publish the folder and any files inside it. The File menu contains the following options:
Dependency ScanLink to this section
Scan a folder to sync the files in the folder with the system database. Dependency scan syncs tags, access settings, and replaces links to files on the staging server with dependency tags (if dependency manager is active for the site).
To run a scan, click File > Dependency Scan and in the "Confirm" box, click OK.
To prevent errors or discrepancies, ensure users are not editing files within a folder while you scan it.
Dependency RevertLink to this section
Revert all dependency tags in pages and files within the folder to URLs (type determined in site settings). To revert tags, click File > Dependency Revert and in the "Confirm" box, click OK.
This is useful when preparing to copy a folder or when searching your site to replace URLs. To prevent errors or discrepancies, ensure users are not editing or moving pages within a folder while you revert it.
Dependency revert does not restore pages and files to previously saved or published states; see version revert.
RenameLink to this section
Click File > Rename and type the new folder name into the field. Press Enter to commit your change or Esc to cancel.
File URLs in Omni CMS are created from the file's location in the site structure so renaming a folder changes the published URL of every file within that folder.
MoveLink to this section
Click File > Move, navigate to your destination in the Omni CMS folders, and click Move. You can also select folder checkboxes and click Move in the list header or drag your folder. Drag a folder from Pages, or from the file navigation sidebar, to a new location. In the "Move or Copy" box, click Move.

CopyLink to this section
Click File > Copy, navigate to the copy destination in your Omni CMS folders, and click Copy. You can also select folder checkboxes and click Copy in the list header or drag your folder. Drag a folder from Pages, or from the file navigation sidebar, to a new location. In the "Move or Copy" box, click Copy.
When copying a folder, you'll see additional "Folder link options" in the "Copy" box. Select the radio button "Update links to content within the copied folder" to create dependency tag links to the copied files in the navigation file contained in the new folder.
Select the radio button "Do not update links to content within the copied folder: Links will point back to original folder and files" to create dependency tag links back to the original files in the navigation file contained in the new folder.
Recycle and RestoreLink to this section
Recycle, rather than delete, a folder so you have the option to restore the folder and its files later.
Recycling a folder from the staging server permanently removes the folder and its files from the production server.
- Ensure the folder and its files are checked in and not part of a workflow.
- Click File > Recycle or select the folder checkbox and click Recycle in the list header.
- In the "Recycle Folder" box, type "recycle" in the confirm field and click Recycle.
Click File > Restore to place the folder and its contents back in its original location.
Managing Multiple FoldersLink to this section
You can affect multiple folders by selecting the folder checkboxes. In the list header, click to move, copy, delete, or publish those folders.
To move or copy multiple folders, select the folder checkboxes and drag them to a new location.
Click the "Select All" checkbox to select all visible files and move, copy, or publish the files simultaneously.
